Personal protective equipment - presentation by the Commission

The Commission representative highlighted that it is an external study including a public consultation in which 27 % of the respondents were enterprises. The main issues of the proposal is the alignment to the New Legislative Framework, a change to the product coverage with the inclusion of oven gloves and dishwashing gloves, a reclassification of certain products, a change of three basic health and safety requirements and, finally, the change of the current directive into a regulation. The inclusion of oven gloves and dishwashing gloves was done because these products have become mass market products since the adoption of the current directive in 1989. The manufacturers of these products (the market for these products is 1.5 bill euro and the EU production is 100 mill euro) usually produce the same oven gloves and dishwashing gloves for professional and industrial use and having the same rules for both products would make production, import and market surveillance easier. Furthermore, the consumer should be able to expect a high level of safety from oven gloves that indicate to offer such protection. The Commission representative clarified that there are 4000 producers of personal protective equipment in Europe, but only a fraction of these produce oven gloves or dishwashing gloves. It was also indicated, that there is a challenge with available data on the subject. The statistics do not specify which injuries are related to gloves that offer inadequate protection.

Presentation of the Impact assessment on Trade secrets

DG MARKT presented the proposal for a Directive on the protection of trade secrets against unlawful acquisition, use and disclosure, and the accompanying impact assessment. The proposal seeks to improve the protection of trade secret holders in the single market, which is currently fragmented by varied and uneven national legal regimes, by harmonising Member States' civil laws. This includes notably clarifying the basic concepts related to the definition and unlawful acquisition of trade secrets, and providing the necessary safeguards for the protection of interests of other parties, for example for avoiding abusive litigation and for guaranteeing confidentiality during litigation.
 
Members stressed the merits of the Commission's proposal, especially for SMEs and micro enterprises, and set out some areas for improvement that could be addressed, such as introducing explicit language on the principle of minimum harmonisation. They also underlined the need to balance the protection of trade secrets with the protection of whistle-blowers and workers working in R&D intensive industries; the importance of ensuring confidentiality during litigation; as well as the need to extend the prescription period.

An EP/Council deal on a life-saving automatic emergency call system for cars, agreed on Monday evening, was backed by Internal Market Committee MEPs on Thursday.The “eCall” system would use the 112 number to call the emergency services automatically, enabling them to reach crash scenes faster and thus save lives and reduce the severity of injuries. The deal would require all new car models to be equipped with eCall technology from 31 March 2018.

Tervitussõnad
 
 

Siseturu- ja tarbijakaitsekomisjon vastutab kaupade, teenuste ja spetsialistide vaba liikumist, tollipoliitikat, standardimist ning tarbijate majandushuve käsitlevate ELi eeskirjade õigusliku järelevalve ja kontrolli eest. Komisjoni liikmete töö on vähendada kaubandustõkkeid ja lihtsustada õigusakte, et suurendada konkurentsivõimet ühtsel turul ja samas kaitsta tarbijate huve eri sektorites.

Meie komisjoni tööd on võimalik jälgida selle veebisaidi vahendusel, kust leiate päevakorrad, koosolekute dokumendid, teabe kuulamiste ja seminaride kohta, voogvideod ja meie uudiskirja.

Hästi toimiv ühtne turg on vahend heaolu, innovatsiooni ja suurema konkurentsivõime saavutamiseks, mis on kasulik nii ettevõtjatele kui ka tarbijatele. Meil on palju ülesandeid ja võimalusi, eelkõige kasutada digitaalse ühtse turu ja teenuste ühtse turu täielikku potentsiaali.
 
Meie eesmärk on tagada toodete ohutus, kaitsta tarbijaõigusi, teavitada tarbijaid toodetest ja teenustest, võidelda konkurentsivastase käitumise vastu ning vähendada halduskoormust.

Komisjon teeb koostööd kõigi ELi liikmesriikidega, et tagada ühtse turu eeskirjade kohaldatavus ning nende õigeaegne rakendamine ja jõustamine.

Mul on au olla selle olulise komisjoni esimees ja teha koostööd erinevaid poliitilisi vaateid esindavate liikmetega selle nimel, et tuua tarbijatele, ettevõtjatele ja muudele organisatsioonidele kogu ühtsel turul tõelist kasu.
